For more than 40 years, TEAR Australia has been enabling communities around the world to use their own skills and resources to overcome poverty and marginalisation. We partner with grassroots organisations involved with development, relief and advocacy projects which focus on the poorest and most marginalised people and give priority to their rights, interests, needs and capacities.
